DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the onion and slice thinly.
  • Clean the broccoli well and remove any leaves from the stalks.
  • Cut the stalks into thin medallions, and cut the florets into roughly 2-inch chunks.
  • You may want to reserve 4 or 6 nice florets to steam and use as garnish in the finished soup bowls.
  • Melt the butter in a 6-quart soup pot and add the onion and broccoli pieces.
  • Sauté until softened, but don't brown the onion.
  • Add the vermouth and let it come to a simmer.
  • Grate the cheese (for a real treat, use Stilchester cheese if you can find it) and add to the soup pot.
  • Purée in a food processor or with a hand held blender until well puréed and the cheese is incorporated.
  • Return to the pot and add the milk or cream and add salt and white pepper to taste.
